What If You Don't Want A First Look? | Something Minted Photography

Maybe you've learned all about a first look and would rather stick to tradition and not see each other until that aisle moment? Just like having a pre-ceremony photography plan, we'll have a post-ceremony plan!

Timing is everything when it comes to holding portraits after the nuptials. It's about having ample natural light for every photo op before you join the party! When forgoing a first look, it's important to begin the ceremony at least 3 hours before sunset. This way we'll have sunlight to spare and you won't have to push back dinner too late.

At the end of the day, not having a first look will mean one less bride and groom photo opportunity. However, it also means every portrait from bridal party to family formals will be held in some of the best light of the day.

Ultimately, the decision comes down to whether or not you'd like to share the moment you first see each other surrounded by family and friends.
